Can't believe it! Not only is UB2004-313 not a planet but neither is Ceres, nor Charon and no longer PLUTO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone wanting to hear the point of view of passionate and intelligent beings, please disregard the recent decision and listen instead to Ken Croswell and the Groks, because Frank was quite right to say he'd be incensed if Pluto were to be demoted. Any right-minded person would and indeed is!
Well - this is a superb Groks show, and has a load of great stuff in it including a real Beavis&Butthead reference to PNAS :-)
Great environmental determinism in the forced convergence of evolution in certain types of bacteria. (Does it extend to more or less everything to some extent? Probably!)
Well.................................. goodbye Pluto - NOT!! We will fight on!!! :-)
Ken please don't rewrite your book!!! Ten you said, and ten it is!!! x
